No escape from the true false world

I think that Highlander would have been quite a bit more interesting had the Immortals gained their power not merely from decapitation, but actual ingestion of their enemy's brains.

"Born in the highlands of Scotland, he is Connor MacLeod, and he will EAT YOUR BRAAAAIIINNNSSS!!!"

The whole concept would change; anyone could become an Immortal; at least, temporarily, by eating the brains of another. This would make any human target appealing; however, eating the brains of a brain-eater would give you even more power, so Immortals would still mostly go after one another to stay immortal longer. Plus, as everyone knows, Cannibalism is wacky!
